Had a really impressive alert on R1 today .... undulating coast road and it sniffed out an I/O 34.919 shot..... easily a mile out detection that I'm thinking my redline might have missed ... I still love the Redline !
We have the Redflex and the R1 is at least 75mtr ahead of the RL.....
Hoping the new firmware gets rid of the ghosting and the R1 may just be living up to the hype ...

Has anyone else been experiencing abit of Laser falses with their R3 or R1? I just decided to turn laser off lol

GPS lockouts on the R3 works really good and it picks up the mobile camera better than my old LRD950NZ.

Got a good 34.7 hit around a S bend as waiting to see how it performs on my next long road trip.

R1 is very quiet on laser .... I can get Redline to false with high beam when parked in front of garage door but R1 doesn't alert
ive read its laser performance isn't that good .
1.30 has drooped the k band KA ghosting so I'm interested to see if the KA wide performance is still outstanding .... just need to find a highway patrol car !!

had an oncoming 34.7 i/o alert yesterday was doing 110 coming up to an 80km zone. looked at km and was aprrox 700m ie 1.4km save. had 3 vehicles between me and cop. most interesting was got same freq rear alert about 750m-1km later as we were both heading away from each other so this r3 appears better than my redline as i have never had redline do this. mounting spot is exactly the same positon/car as handed redline to the wifes car.

What firmware and settings is everyone running on their R3 or R1?

I've also disabled the RLC and speed camera as they are all based for US. Maybe I could load the database from my LRD950NZ into my R3 lol

i updated to 1.30 and seems better for bsm filtering without having to use k or ka filtering. havent had a police encounter yet so cant comment. love the fact can choose color and layout looks heaps better. lots of better features go update to it.

You could probably get a good deal in August when you go. Otherwise I heard @Aucklandradar had one for sale. PM him.
